I gotta say though, not a fan of that grill. Looks out of place, maybe if you were to color match some of it it would flow better IMHO.
Thank you. The grill is a work in progress. The idea behind it was to do a brushed paint job on it in order to match the rims but it isnt something that I am in love with. Toying with the idea of fully chroming it or painting it something different. Not sure yet.

I have seen some fog light retros but they used different fogs or didnt have a lense on the front of it. Pics of yours?

The door lights I got a year or so ago but if memory serves me correctly they were like 20-22 for a pair.

defiantly making me want to keep my paint oem because its to the point where i need to repaint it anyways. SO INSPIRING =]

for a min i thought you were the vlad with that crazy suby but im sure theres more than one in the world lol

The paint is not OEM at this point. It has been repainted in a custom color. Slightly lighter and with a lot more pearl right now.

Never owned a suby lol.

Yes, there have been some pictures floating around on instagram and facebook. I debuted the car at Tuner Evolution in PA on August 2. Took home 3rd place in the VIP category. BigTy placed first, no big surprise his car is fully built, love it.

All pictures were taken by people at the show. Unfortunately I don't remember all of the photographers so cant give them credit. If you took the pictures thank you!

Reviving this thread for an update. Went to Springfest a few weeks ago and got the club recognition award from Royal Republic. One of the better shows I've been to. As far as an update on the car, I decided to redo the trunk because the previous installer's work was crap. At this time I went with 2 JL 10w7 V3 Anniversary edition subs in a 4th order bandpass box ported through the rear deck. Bass hits hard and clear, loving it! Also updated the rear of the car by swapping out the muffler tips and having my body shop rework the openings on the rear bumper to make it look right.

Some more flicks to enjoy since my last update.

Looks amazing... the fenders.. the satin deep deep dish wheels... the color!
Like that you were able to run the L in the center of the wheel too.
Nice job man!
